ISO 31000 Risk Management - Training Courses & Certification
Risk is present in every aspect of our life, from mundane everyday activities such as choosing a route to work, to complex corporate decisions such as opening a manufacturing plant in a different country. Much effort was put over the past decades to better understand risk and its nature, which led to the creation of methodologies and approaches that enable individuals and organizations to make accurate decisions based on logical reasoning. One of the most distinguished frameworks to address risk is provided by ISO 31000, an international standard that incorporates principles, proven practices, and guidelines on managing risks faced by organizations.
14-17 June, 2023
ISO 31000 enables organizations to identify the potential risks that could hinder the achievement of business objectives. It will also help them to determine the significance of risks and decide which risks should be mitigated first in order to achieve the objectives before they affect the business, and effectively keep all other risks under control. In addition, ISO 31000’s best practices allow organizations to develop a desired risk management culture.
